BOISE, Idaho — Idaho State Police are investigating a vehicle versus semi-truck crash that happened on Interstate 84, west of Bliss, which sent one man to the hospital.

Police said the crash happened at about 10:45 a.m. Sunday near milepost 134 on eastbound Interstate 84.

The crash happened when 28-year-old Jaime Morales Juarez of Gooding attempted to pass a semi-truck. While he was trying to pass the truck, Juarez lost control of his vehicle, crashed into the semi-truck, and got trapped underneath it.

Officials have not released Juarez's current medical status or how serious his injuries are.
